TOYS: Ultron, Silver Surfer, and the Battle Beasts, Oh My!
New Comic Book Day is quickly becoming New Toy Day at local comic book and specialty stores. This week, Diamond Select Toys has a number of new products arriving including a new Marvel Select Ultron figure.
Marvel Select Ultron
Watch out, Avengers — Ultron has arrived! Designed and sculpted by Gentle Giant this 7-inch figure depicts the classic Avengers villain in all his robotic glory. Ultron was built with 16 points of articulation, so he can strike menacing and/or victorious poses over the fallen forms of Ant-Man and the Wasp on his display base. He comes packaged in our deluxe Select packaging, suitable for in-package display and with keen side art for shelf storage.
Silver Surfer Metal Bottle Opener
Galactus may hunger, but he’ll need a tall beverage to wash down that planet he just ate! Luckily, there’s this handy-dandy Silver Surfer bottle opener to pop open the top of his grape Nehi! Standing nearly 6 inches tall, this metal opener depicting Norrin Radd, surfer of the spaceways, has the same chrome finish as Galactus’ most famous herald. Simply holding it in your hand makes you feel like a devourer of worlds!
Battle Beasts #3 (IDW Publishing)
Based on the upcoming toy line from DST, it’s Battle Beasts #3 from IDW! The epic invasion of Earth by the Beasts has turned San Francisco into a war zone, and the army has been called in to deal with the situation. Vorin, Merk and Gruntos take their human charges underground, and we catch a glimpse of how their band of brothers was formed. The last chapter before the whisker-rattling finale! Regular cover by Valerio Schiti; 1 in 10 cover (part two of a triptych) by Jeff Zornow.
I know for sure I’m picking up the Ultron figure if for no other reason that it will pair nicely with the Iron Man action figure, and I can make them fight, Fight, FIGHT!
